How Your Support Makes a Difference

Whether you're an avid supporter of David's Refuge, or learning about us for the first time, this event is an exciting way to cheer on your favorite driver while supporting caregiving parents.  

Each donation provides respite, resources and support to caregiving parents.  Here at David's Refuge, we care for families by caring for the caregivers.  Our programs allow caregivers to engage in the ways that are right for their family's needs.  We offer everything from respite weekends and date nights to mental health counseling, typical sibling workshops and family events and activities. 

The impact of your donation goes beyond simply cheering on your racer - Your gift reminds these caregivers, now when they need it most, that they are not alone, what they do matters and that God and our community loves them. 

About the Track

Pineview Run is New York's newest destination for the Outdoor and Auto Enthusiast.  They feature 1.1 miles of smooth race-grade asphalt dedicated to the driving pleasure of its members. Located approximately 15 minutes from Syracuse, Pineview Run is more than a road course. Pineview Run is a destination for individuals and families with an array of services and amenities, such as professional driving instructions, sports car rentals, karting, horseback riding, shooting, archery, hunting and ATV trail riding, along with snowmobiling, pond skating and cross country skiing in the winter months.


Thank you to our Event Sponsors

In just a few months, Pineview Run will be hosting the very first Pineview Run Celebrity Challenge in conjunction with OneGroup to benefit David’s Refuge. OneGroup serves their clients with the same level of care that David’s Refuge serve’s their families, making the partnership an easy fit. The only thing this event is missing are passionate individuals who secretly dreamed of becoming professional track drivers and/or those who are willing to have some fun to raise money for a great cause.

With that, we hope you will consider joining our event as a celebrity driver and help to raise funds for David’s Refuge. Here’s what participation as a driver would entail:

  • First and foremost, bring your energy, competition, passion and lead foot!
  • Get ready to fundraise! Over the course of a month, you will compete against other celebrity drivers to collect donations for David’s Refuge.
  • What’s the recipe to win? For every $1,000 that you raise, one tenth of a second will be taken off your track time.
  • August 25th – Training Day: We’ll give you all of the resources you need to make it around the track safely and in one piece. Be coached by Pineview’s expert driving instructors, meet David’s Refuge representatives and work with OneGroup’s marketing team to create your campaign video.
  • Raising Funds: Following training day, you will be provided with a media kit, including your driving video from training day, social media templates for posting, and a link to your fundraising page. You have one month to bring your track time down!
  • Think you’ll need some extra practice time before the big day? We can arrange for practice time at the track!
  • Not confident in your driving skills? Lean on those connections! Bring in donations to shave time off your final lap time!
  • Sept 30th - Start your Engines! Starting at 9 AM, drivers will take their official timed laps around the track.
  • Didn’t get the results you were looking for? You will have one more week to raise money and get your time down.
